AUSTRALIA: COURT DOCUMENT SHEDS NEW LIGHT ON ALLEGED MONEY LAUNDERING CASE INVOLVING FORMER SOUTH SUDANESE MILITARY GENERAL

ABC News in Australia reported on 14th May on activities in the County Court of Victoria, where the AFP launched civil action under the Proceeds of Crime Act.  It concerns Ngouth Oth Mai, the son of James Hoth Mai, the former chief of staff to Sudan’s People’s Liberation Army (SPLA).  The article asks how did then 22-year-old Ngouth Oth Mai manage to buy a $1.5 million property in Melbourne upfront in 2014 when he had only ever earned welfare payments.  Court documents claim that more than $1.5 million was transferred in 5 instalments from companies located in Uganda and Kenya, sometimes going through banks in Dubai, into a business account registered to a luxury car business — Sportscars Dealers — a company where Nguoth Oth Mai, was both director and majority shareholder, but the Australian Federal Police stated the company did not trade any vehicles.
